The Limit of the Tongue is the story of Margaux and Jaime: cousins, colleagues, and best friends very best friends. Their tumultuous relationship is complicated and often suspect, not least by Margauxs husband Alex, whom she married when she became pregnant with her daughter Callie. Now Callie is a teenager with her own burgeoning problems the most pressing of which are her recent bi-polar diagnosis and her resulting new caretaker, the Shakespeare-spouting Helene. Further tangling the situation is the fact that Helene also happens to be Margauxs student, brought into the family mix in exchange for Margaux overlooking a recent plagiarism offense. When Margaux discovers that she is again pregnant, it leads to a rift between herself and Jaime, one that may be too big to fix this time. Their emotional maelstrom threatens to undo the family entirely, exposing truths better left unspoken.
